Girl in a Fantasy



So today I realized every single one of my accessories is turquoise, including the shoes. I didn't actually plan this, although it must have happened subconsciously, because these things don't just fall into place so magically on their own.

I watched "A Good Man Goes To War" again today, the latest episode of Doctor Who, and it is just as good the second time. Nearly cried, again. Had to hold it in though as I was at work. The things I do for love the Doctor. As I told Greg, I'm glad I already had a TARDIS tattoo after watching that episode, because if I didn't I'd be gouging the Doctor's face into my flesh out of pure obsessive love for that man. I kind of want another Who tattoo, but I know it's just a momentary lapse in judgment and will hold off on that.





I'm wearing: H&M dress, F21 necklace, Target shoes, earrings from crystalbrilliance.


This whole going-to-school-in-the-UK-this-fall hasn't quite hit me yet. Every time I think about it, it just doesn't seem real. It's almost like I don't want to get excited until I'm there, because I don't want to wake up from this fantasy. I'm a total dork but I don't know, it doesn't seem real to me! The only time it does is when I think about being apart from Greg for a year and then I just cry. Good times.

In preparation for my times abroad, I've procured Heinz Baked Beans from the British section in Fred Meyer. I've yet to eat them on toast, but soon. Soon. I'll let you weirdos know how it is. I know you want beans on toast too, you crazy fellow Americans you. ♥

And finally, you must all go visit my friend Crystal's etsy shop! It's only in its infancy, but the earrings I'm wearing today (seen in the following craptastic picture) are made by her, and I love them! They're so pretty and dainty and light so they don't make my ears hurt. Go buy her stuff, I vouch for it!

Baked beans? Sounds...mushy.I'm so jealous you're headed to the UK for a year...I might have to copy you. You look adorable with your turquoise accessories. Missed your posts!

Ha, I cried during the new episode too. As soon as Amy started talking, the hysterical fangirl sobbing began! And I kiiiind of want to get a tattoo of the Doctor's name from the side of his crib!

Your friend Crystal has some damn cute earrings. Unfortunately I don't wear danglies anymore since my ears are stretched, and when I wear regular earrings in my second pair they get irritated. Sadness :(

Aww, it's so exciting that you're going to the UK for school! It may be hard at first being away, but I'm sure you'll absolutely love it there :)
Anyway, that leopard print dress looks awesome on you, and I am loving the turquoise accessories!

I love this animal print dress on you. You can never have too much teal! ;-)

JennaStevie said...

Ohh dear, I love this dress, what a great print on it! And turquoise jewellery is amazing, such a pretty necklace and earrings. Ohh UK in the fall will be very exciting. Of course being apart will be difficult but it'll be a great experience for you. Baked beans on toast? Thats a new one

I love beans on toast. Make sure you butter your bread first!

It's also good with some really good quality cheddar cheese (ie. not that orange fake crap). And beans and cheese on a roasted potato might be my favorite British food next to pot pies.

Emma said...

i just adore your quirkyness, both personality and style! such an amazing dress.

Rai said...

Oh my, I am just so so in love with your tattoo <3

Miss Maggie said...

I live in the UK and I have to say that I hate baked beans with a passion. They freak me out. I'm not a weirdo, ask Pythagoras, he was convinced that beans were evil too as they held the 'souls' of dead people. Or something like that.

Love the turquoise earrings :)

Nona said...

Kellie, a friend of mine is thinking about getting the Doctor's name tattooed on her arm!

I love this dress. And those SHOES. Love.

I've almost made it to the current season of Doctor Who! I don't want to get caught up though, because that will eventually mean no more episodes to watch back to back. :(

Lip shaped leopard print. A total win.

I love this dress, especially paired with the turquoise!

I loved that episode too. It is going to be so annoying though to have to wait until the next episode to be aired. wah. It feels like it was yesterday I was waiting for the new season to start at all, you know?

chocolateteacup said...

Whereabouts are you going to be studying? And don't say London, I'll slap you! lol

I want a TARDIS tattoo now. With the words 'The ones that love us never really leave us' underneath from Harry Potter. It'd be cool :)
